To clarify, not all statists are Nazis but all Nazis are statists. Without the power of the state backing them up, a Nazi is just a bigot.

But will they work on Nazis?
Or other statists?

There is the danger, Shark, that you're inadvertently equating Nazis and people who like to be even mildly efficient.  I'm sure that's not what you meant to do.

Not at all - I'm lumping all those who believe
in the rights of the state together...

Thanks, Huffy - I did write a Dredd script but it's dire. Still, at least it's words on a page, which is something.

My best to you, Hawkie - I'm sure you'll get through it, especially with the support of your fellow Squaxx.

I've just discovered Star Trek Continues, and it's really rather good - far superior to Discovery. I've only downloaded the first six episodes so far but have already seen some smile-inducing guest stars such as ex-Who Colin Baker and the awesome Lou Ferrigno (playing an Orion slaver - painted green again!), as well as Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn lending their voices to computers.

Absolutely worth watching!

"I give up. How do... you baffle... a vegetable?".


Ask it to deal with Brexit.

Watching Ep3 as I type - finding the whole thing quite boring, tbh.

...  He's a cynical, conniving weasel.
Or as most people refer to them:  a Tory politician.

Does this mean that knowledge can only come from pure sources? And who decides what is a pure source and which are impure?

This conversation is not progressing in anywhere near the direction I'd hoped for.

So? If we look at only one side, how can we understand either?

Your apology is accepted, Frank. I'll have it dry-cleaned and returned to you presently because it's just not necessary.

I have expressed, on this very thread and no doubt very irritatingly, my yearning for a safe space for discussion and debate without the more caustic parts. Wouldn't it be great, the idealist on my shoulder whispered, if we could turn this very thread to that purpose - a place of debate where offence is not given, not taken and not tolerated. And whether this notion can manifest or not remained, buzzing about aimlessly in the weed-riddled garden of my mind.

When I read the article I linked to, I thought it raised some interesting questions and might do as a springboard for a discussion in the way I'd hoped.

I can see where I went wrong, though. Wrong article. Back-fire. Blinks stupidly. WOMP-womp.

The dots hereby joined, I return your apology unused as it's not required and offer you an apology of my own. It's worn a bit thin in places and some of the edges are a bit tatty but it's one of my oldest and best, "sorry for being such a knucklehead" apologies. Good throughout the Commonwealth, that is. Except the UK, obviously - Mrs Windsor and I are at loggerheads for the moment.

Netherlands Discovers ‘Achilles Heel’ of Euthanasia.

I've seen a lot of passive aggressive behaviour on the internet, but posting that here represents a new low.




I thought we might have a discussion about an interesting topic. That's all.
